La Garrucha Declaration
Good afternoon to all the women participating in this first Encounter of Zapatista Women with Women of the World.
We women from different parts of the world, activists of the World March of Women and Via Campesina, in solidarity with the struggle of the Zapatista women, are very happy to be present at this event. Its international character, and the honesty with which our hosts have shared their experiences with us, permit the globalisation of women's struggles around the world and support to the Zapatista women and to the Zapatista movement in general.

Just after midnight on January 1st, was the 14th anniversary of the Zapatista uprising, and the caracol of La Garrucha was alive with celebration. >From the top of a refurbished school bus we watched a mass of bodies dance to norteÃ±os below a vast sky littered with stars, and the occasional covering of fog that characterizes the mountains of the Mexican southeast.

During this meeting, our basic objective was to place value on the meaning of equality, from a feminist perspective of women working in agriculture, and we want to demand and promote publicly at a global level that equality should become a reality.
Participating in this activity were women from all over the world affiliated with Via Campesina and feminists presenting basic feminist thinking. The first days were dedicated to feminist training as a way to approach the issue based on the concrete realities, to assess the advance of feminism for the fight for real equality. The last days were dedicated to debating the circles of cooperation to advance women’s rights.
